Thanks Buck, MIG dry european mud straight from the jar. Applied a tiny bit at a time with an old brush until it looked OK. Didn't want it too thick as Im sure they weren't daft enough to lug a shovel with thick mud on around.

More work on the backpack, when properly blended Ill put in the brass fittings and try using pens to draw the seams and outlines instead of using a brush. Ive done this before and as long as the colour is right it works well. I have a set of Pigma Micron pens and will try a black brown and burnt umber.

Bit more work, blocked in the socks and boots. Socks blocked in with the three uniform colours and boots with Nato black model air. Im not going to town on these as he'll be quite heavily spattered with mud when mounted on the base so I will detail when this is done if its needed.




Cleaned up the arms and begun to attach and fill. I'm going to attach the arms then paint, however the hands are folded to the rifle and because he is holding the gun very close to his body I'll paint this before fixing it.

Apologies for the lack of posts. Have been busy with little to show for it. Haven't posted the cutting, sanding and filling as I know we've all seen enough of that LOL. Also during this process I lost all the shoulder tile letters which Ive now replaced (lesson learned). Anyhow FINALLY,  both arms on now and painted in the three uniform colours with blending and glaze medium. Needs a coat of flat now.




Started blocking in the rifle and hands.
rifle base coat in Vallejo Model Air (MA) flat brown.
strap and bayonet handle in MA sand
hands in Model Colour flat flesh.
Ive bought some of the new Vallejo metallic colour paints and will give them a try on the gun. If they're as good as they look Im going to re-touch the brass fittings etc on the figure.

More work on the rifle blending the wood tones using MA dark brown and burnt umber, shades and highlights done on the hands with black red and light flesh respectively. (and many mixed tones between). Glaze medium used throughout.
Vallejo metal colours, Steel, Gun metal and aluminium used for the guns metal elements and the bayonet blade.

I have re-touched the buttons and buckles with metal colour gold, which I think looks great as polished brass. Thats pretty much it for the figure apart from some touches when he's on the base, especially on his legs and boots which will be muddy and I intend to include some still and splashing water effects also.
If there is no objection I would like to continue with the base work as part of this thread as I will be scratch building a trench bottom 'duckboard', and muddy ground. This will also allow me to 'fully' finish the model and show any final touches I may do upon completion.

Decided on a Yew base and used blue tac to position the plaque, tunic button, shoulder tile and regimental badge. Then fixed with CA.





Cut 10mm styrofoam to fit the base and made the duck board from balsa wood using dimensions taken from the Imperial War Museum and scaled down to 1/9th. (200mm).
Then cut the foam into a more interesting shape.








Coloured the duck board with Vallejo wash brown. And used MIG mud for the foam base. I have gradually put in the tread wear with light brown and grey pigments applied with a brush. Gave it a try on the base, then put in the nail holes.
I decided to break one of the rungs of the duck board and began to fill under the board with Vallejo still water effect. I will build up this in layers allowing it to dry between coats.







Have got some rats which look very accurate in the scale I'm using so I may give them a try.

I like the broken board and the lighter center on the boards makes them look well trod upon. Nice. Super Nice.
